  • Publication number: 20190156272
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and computer-readable media are provided for enabling mobile device-based item acquisition and tracking. One exemplary method performed on a mobile device comprises entering a wireless scan mode, detecting a signal from a tag associated with an item in a first area and in proximity to the tag, presenting information associated with the tag, and adding the information to a list. The method further comprises detecting a second tag in a second area, and sending the list to a second device. A second exemplary method performed by a processing terminal comprises receiving the list from a mobile device, entering a wireless scan mode, detecting a signal from a tag associated with an item in proximity to the tag, determining whether the item associated with the detected tag is present on the received list, and enabling the mobile device to complete a transaction to purchase the item.

  • Publication number: 20180290687
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for path management. Consistent with disclosed embodiments, path management system may be configured to perform a series of operations for real time path analysis. The embodiments may determine a user location based on received location data, and then determine a user path based on a sequence of user locations. The embodiments may calculate a path map based on user locations, and then determine one or more of a user density map and a user velocity map based on the path map. The embodiments may determine regions of the user density maps and user velocity maps, and provide instructions to one or more of an environment and a user device. The embodiments may provide guidance to a user of user of the path management system, and/or instructions to change a status of a service location; or modify a product layout or fixture arrangement.

  • Patent number: 10043175
    Abstract: A secure fob that enables a user to pay for an item or items without needing to present a mobile device. A secure fob may include a proximity capability to ensure that a mobile device is within a particular range, thereby eliminating the risk of fraudulent charges on a stolen fob. In such an embodiment, a fob may be disabled if the fob is not paired with the mobile device by virtue of being disconnected and/or physically separated from the mobile device. The secure fob also may include enhanced features to authorize transactions and locate the mobile device and/or the secure fob.

  • Publication number: 20180183804
    Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for managing electronic tokens for device interactions. In some embodiments, a unified graphical user interface is provided for an account, for controlling the activation status and settings associated with authorized electronic devices used for conducting transactions on the account. The electronic devices may be programmed with an electronic token that allows a server to look up sensitive account information, although the electronic token does not divulge the account information itself. Therefore, if an electronic token is compromised or stolen, the account does not need to be closed, and sensitive information remains safe. Moreover, the unified graphical user interface provides detailed and highly customizable controls for settings and restrictions associated with each of the electronic tokens, without modifying or accessing sensitive account or personal information.
